We recently had the opportunity to spend a weekend at the Tintswalo Atlantic in Cape Town. By any standards, it was one of the most beautiful luxury lodges we’ve stayed in and certainly the most spectacular rooms we’ve experienced in South Africa. Visiting Tintswalo Atlantic luxury Beach Hotel has been on our list for a while, and this winter we finally had the chance to experience it first-hand.
Their slogan of “where the soul meets the sea” captures the mood of this divine luxury hotel perfectly. To call this a beach hotel would be a bit of an understatement, as your porch is literally on the rocks at the foot of Table Mountain. At night, the eb and flow of the breaking waves lulls you to sleep. Fifteen minutes drive from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town city centre, you descend the steep cliff to be greeted by the friendly hosts, Melissa and the Atlantic team, and their service and fanfare during the welcome swept us off our feet. The evening meal was notably special fare underlining the fact that to stay here is to experience South Africa at its best!
Unfortunately we did not have time to visit the spa, but this will undoubtedly be on the itinerary for our next visit. If a little physical activity is what you are after, they also do Fynbos walks in the mountains, another item for our list for next time.
We left Tintswalo Atlantic feeling pampered and suitably impressed, promising ourselves that we would return soon. If you would like to break away, want to spoil your spouse, celebrate that special event… It’s hard think of a more appropriate and spectacular place to recommend.

The five-star boutique lodge is situated within the Table Mountain National Park, perched in a magnificent setting on a pebbled beach at the foot of Chapman’s Peak.
